SAN JOSE, CALIF. (April 23, 2009) – VirtualPBX announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC),, has named Virtual PBX’s Open VoIP Peering as a recipient of NGN Magazine’s First Annual NGN Leadership Award.

Virtual PBX is the first hosted PBX company to offer an Open VoIP Peering option, which is ideal for users who already have VoIP phones or want to reap the cost benefits of moving to VoIP. The service opens up greater opportunities for businesses that need the flexibility to mix-and-match a VoIP network with any SIP-compliant phone. This truly “blended” service gives businesses unprecedented flexibility as they can choose to use a VoIP network for cost savings or standard phone lines for better call quality. Open VoIP Peering provides the “make or break” difference needed in today’s challenging economic times.

“Being part of the first NGN Leadership Award is truly an honor and confirms our dedication to delivering enterprise-class solutions for the NGN market,” said Paul Hammond, president and CEO of Virtual PBX. “At Virtual PBX, we are committed to providing cost-effective solutions to businesses of all sizes, and this award reinforces our leadership in the hosted PBX community.”

The NGN Leadership Award was established to recognize outstanding achievement in the IP Communications community, including outstanding products, services and technologies relating to IMS and NGN environments. The 2009 NGN Leadership Award winners can be found in the May/June 2009 issue of NGN Magazine, available at

“Virtual PBX has been recognized for its exceptional work in advancing IMS and NGN services and technologies, and we honor Open VoIP Peering with an NGN Leadership Award. With the significant growth in next-generation network technologies, receiving this award distinguishes the company as a leader in the industry,” stated Rich Tehrani, president of TMC.
